New Living Translation
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
Don’t worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks for what you have. 7 And because you belong to Christ Jesus, God’s peace will stand guard over all your thoughts and feelings. His peace can do this far better than our human minds. (Phil 4:6-7)
In Philippians 4:6-7 it tells us
Do not stress over what is in front of you time and place in anything but speak in fervent about everything to the one who listens most and is most high the all knowing God master creator be in prayer for all you need and do always giving grace and thanks for all he provides and gives and because you belong to and are of Christ Jesus God’s calmness will over come you covering all your thoughts, feelings and emotions his peace can cover you more than anything else you giving you stable peace of mind
What Does Philippians 4:7 Mean? ►
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
As he draws his letter to the believers at Philippi to a close, Paul encourages all of us to live godly lives and to apply all the principles of spiritual living that we learned from him, so that we may live a normal, Christian life that is acceptable to the Father and honouring to the Son – and to do so will ensure that God’s incomprehensible peace will protect our hearts and govern our minds in Christ Jesus our Lord.
We are called to stand fast in the faith of the gospel of Christ and to refrain from any foolish quarrels or unspiritual attitudes towards others.. and to keep away from any false doctrine or erroneous teachings. We are to discover our joy in the Lord and gladden our hearts by developing an attitude of rejoicing in Him and in the power of His might – so that we may press on to the upward goal of our calling in Christ Jesus.
We are warned neither to fret nor to become anxious about anything that life may throw at us… but rather we are strongly exhorted to depend entirely upon the Lord for everything, for His Word is true and His promises are all ‘yes’ and ‘amen’ in Christ Jesus.
And we are urged to pray rightly – which means that in everything we should, ‘pray first!’ Our supplications should be sincere for our prayers should be conducted in spirit and truth, while emanating from in a heart of thanksgiving and praise.
As Paul draws his epistle to a close we are reminded of the conditions that God Himself has laid down for all His children, in order to enjoy that inner, living, perfect peace of God which passes all understanding,
Let us seek to live our Christian life as God intended.. with right thinking, right speaking, right acting and right praying, so that the peace of God which transcends all understanding shall guard our hearts and our mind in Christ Jesus.
People turn to the Bible for support with many challenges, and chief among them is anxiety.
According to data released by Amazon on the most highlighted passage in Kindle ebooks, the most popular passage from the Bible is one on reducing anxiety and finding trust in God.
The specific passage is Philippians 4:6-7 (New International Version), which states:
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Most Biblical scholars agree that the apostle Paul composed Philippians while he was in prison, Greg Carey, a professor of New Testament at Lancaster Theological Seminary, told HuffPost.
Today, may we go forth in the impenetrable strength of the Lord, blessed by His peace; The peace beyond understanding and greater than any circumstance. Thank You Lord that as we live in Christ Jesus this peace will guard our hearts and minds.
